Jane Fosters heavy attack is bugged (misses enemies right next to her)

MikeHockMikeHock Posts: 1,612 ★★★★
I know there’s lots of bugs in the game right now, but this one has been in the game since Jane Foster was released. Her heavy attack is gimped as is, and covers very short distance.

In the video below, her heavy attack misses enemies who are right next to her.

    There is nothing wrong with her heavy. Your to far away.

    I see. You 're consistently doing parry + basic + heavy. At 9 secs you hit but numerous times you dont (ie. Last miss versus Iceman).

    Try doing two matches with:

    - Parry + Light + Heavy

    - Parry + Medium + Heavy

    Then compare and post results. When you miss without parry, its difficult to tell gauge the distance. When you parry, not only is it easier to tell, but it's also more precise due to consistency.

    If the results vary, then there is a bug. If not, then you one attack pushes the opponent more than the other.

    Nonsense. I do a single hit and then a heavy. At 7 seconds, the heavy connects. I do the same thing at 15, 20 & 32 seconds and she misses.
    at 7 seconds you whiff, as you're too far.
    you connect after the parry, but launch too far from the body of the defender every other time. feel free to record any other champ with a quick heavy release/ short reach (ronan, Ultron, juggernaut, iron man) doing these same slick moves. i connect testing this out with ms foster and Ronan, but i also know what I'm doing, apparently.

    And then we have those who glide towards opponent like killmonger, luke cage etc
    Just like how some champs lunge themselves far towards opponent with their dash
    I dunno maybe it’s meant to be like that?

    I whiff with my heavy at 15 seconds. The distance of her heavy attack is the issue. I’m doing a single hit into a heavy. With any other hero, I can do this and the heavy connects every time.

    Here’s a compilation of vids taken this week with Jane Foster. I’m mostly just testing her heavy during these fights , trying to highlight an issue with her core mechanic, so yes my fighting isn’t great.

    Her heavy attack whiffs. Seems to happen when the enemy skips or inches closer. This doesn’t happen with any other champion.

    Happens 5 times
    :03 seconds
    :14 seconds
    :27 seconds
    :42 seconds
    :53 seconds


    She can’t keep her eye on the ball!

    MCoC 25.1 - Same problem.

    Jane Fosters heavy attack whiffs at :06 and :20 seconds of the vid below.
    The enemy does not block
    The enemy does not dash or dex back

    Here’s another video taken in the arena this week. It doesn’t happy every time. Her heavy attack is just poorly designed and inconsistent. This doesn’t happen with any other hero.

    She misses at:
    :35 seconds
    :45 seconds
    :54 seconds

    It's the range man. Thor(Jane) & Thor(OG) both have really shot heavy range. Probably the shortest in the game.
    It happened to me plenty of times.

    She is totally useless anyway. We don't care. I did a post for proof how she hits like baby. Lot of 3 and 4 stars are more powerful and can kill ws of rol with 30/50% less hits when mine is 6*r1 lol

    If they can “fix” the heavy attack of She Hulk and 11 other heroes, they should fix this too.

    You don’t speak for everyone. Obviously the OP cares. Just because she’s viewed as trash by everyone doesn’t mean she should stay broken forever.

    Considering this has been ignored for 3 weeks, even with video evidence, I guess I’ll waste my time and email a ticket into the customer service about this problem.

    Still, I’ll continue to post vids of this bug here on the forums whenever it happens.

    Short arm problems unfortunately, she's probably similar to rocket's arm length

    That was all user error, lmao
  • It does look in videos that sometimes she will jump forward much further when executing her Heavy in order to reach the opponent, than at other times when she barely moves forward at all (and misses) for her Heavy even though she would have been able to reach them if she moved forward the same amount as other times.

    Think that is what people are getting at, it should be consistent.
  • MikeHockMikeHock Posts: 1,612 ★★★★
    I appreciate all the supportive comments. Like others have said, I’m looking for some consistency. If you watch most of these vids, the enemy even jumps a little closer to me as my heavy whiffs.

    Here is a slow motion vid. I do a single dash(M) attack then try to launch a heavy that whiffs. Per Kabam support (and others in this thread), I’m too far away.

    How much closer can I get?

  • MikeHockMikeHock Posts: 1,612 ★★★★
    Here’s another slo mo clip.

    I block
    Single dash attack
    Heavy whiffs

    Blade does not dash back or dex. Blade does not block. Blade appears to move closer to me and still I miss. How much closer can I get after just hitting the enemy??








  • Despite the distance JaneFoster will go during her Heavy maybe being inconsistent, I actually only will do Heavies immediately after a Parry. I know some will do Parry and a hit first before Heavy, or will try and tack on a Heavy after a Combo (dangerous timing).
    But Parry-Heavy is best, and there is no way that it could possible be out of range if you were to do that instead.
